This also was not entirely new, for it had been preceded as early as the 1870's by the admission of special students for the purpose of taking short courses, particularly in the winter terms....The course was continued for three years with a total enrollment of sixty-five, of whom twenty-five completed the requirements for a diploma. It was then suspended, to be replaced by a series of ten short winter courses in several branches of practical work. When it was revived twenty years later, the two-year program met with greater success.}}
